Side Trail Series — Our 2nd side trail of the year is another exploration into the innovative East Coast style of “Juicy” hop-forward beers. The goal of this style is to produce a beer that accentuates and magnifies all the best flavors of tropical/citrusy hop varieties while virtually eliminating the bitterness common of American IPAs and mimicking the appearance and creamy texture of a thick glass of orange juice. (Yes, it should be hazy. Very hazy. This is a byproduct of the process rather and a goal in and of itself.) The alcohol is restrained compared to many other examples of this style, placing Squeeze and Thank You into the excessively drinkable category of Juicy Pale Ale. This beer is at its best the day that it leaves the brewery.
